Recorded at Hertz Hall on the campus of the University of California in Berkeley, a concert of contemporary piano music, the majority of which is for piano four hands. The concert begins with Judith Ann McGrew performing Peter Winkler’s “Seven Short Pieces,” a 1960 composition for solo piano. This is followed by then Winkler, joined by Douglas Leedy for a performance of Erik Satie’s “Aperçus Désagréables.” Another piano duet, “Pieces for Joan Gallegos” then follows, with its composer, John Thomas, being joined by Leedy at the piano. It is then Leedy’s turn to demonstrate his composition prowess, as both Winkler and Thomas present his “Pieces,” also scored for piano four hands. The concert then concludes with the better known, “Three Easy Pieces” by Igor Stravinsky, performed by McGrew and Winkler.
